Marcus (Rocket)

Sex: Neutered Male

Breed: Retriever, Labrador/Shepherd

Age: 2 years, 3 months

Size: Medium (20-59)

Status: Adoptable

Rocket is a very well behaved, loyal, smart pup. He’s is approaching 2 years old, and still has the energy to prove it. He loves to play catch and tug of war and loves to go for walks/runs. He listens very well and is protective of those he cares about. He currently lives with 2 dogs, 1 cat and 10 chickens and has never caused any problems with any of the animals. He does express attitude toward other animals when receiving affection if the animal approaches while he’s getting loved on.

Rocket likes his space. He will be your personal shadow and follow you loyally everywhere you go and listen obediently, but it is important that he is not disturbed while he’s sleeping and laying down. He needs his own dog bed to sleep on. Rocket loves being pet, but does not like to be cuddled or hugged. Because of his need for space, Rocket should not be in a home with kids.

The ideal home for Rocket would be with an adult(s) who looking for a loyal, smart, protective dog that has a yard for him to run around in.

Rocket is up to date on all his shots and is on Heart Worm preventative (he has a couple months left) and flea prevention (Seresto collar)
